I don't know what happened here. If someone had an accident and just left their caravan, or if someone just dumped it there late one evening.... ?? It has been there for some time.
I promised my friend (ad. August 20th. ) that I would also show "the other side" of Stavanger. 
Well here is one example.  I have to say that old car wrecks and dumped washing machines etc. are not smart, environmentally friendly or a nice thing to show tourists or everyone else driving around in Norway. But these things happen all too often.

On the other hand, old wrecks sometimes provide interesting textures and colors to photograph.

It is an odd place to leave your trailer. I have to say that here in California, we see alot of dumping as well. I guess people feel that it costs too much to properly dispose of things. You're right about the interesting shot though!

I think even in the nicest places you'll find some unpleasant sights like this. But you're right that they are interesting to photograph.

It's been dumped. I have seen that a few times where I live.

Not that I have seen an abandoned caravan before, but I guess dumping happens everywhere! There are some good examples around here too... and I agree they could make interesting photos. I have to focus on that! :-)

Uff da! Oj da! Now it's a camper for squirrels, rabbits and raccoons!

Leif is right. The animals will appreciate it. But it's certainly a depressing sight, wherever it occurs.

Every street or canal here is a dumping ground, not for caravans but for almost everything else.
In your case the colors and the place create a sort of nice photo op. Somewhere else it is less pleasant and difficult to ignore forever.

Coup de vent ou accident?

They are an eye-sore, but as you say, a photo opportunity.

I think dumped too. Looking forward to seeing more wrecks that you've promised!
